CUPS’ Ultimate Recipe For Irish Coffee

Caffeine, we like it. We’re obsessed with that buzzy, energetic feeling we enjoy after knocking down a big ol’ cuppa. But we’re about to take it up a notch (or six). Welcome to CUPS kitchen. 

We’re getting extra spirited with today’s Irish Coffee recipe:

How to Make a Seriously Smooth Iced Irish Coffee🍀

If you’re rolling your eyes right now because you’ve experienced a mediocre Irish Cream Coffee before as some sugary nightcap in the back of a loud bar, stay tuned. We’re going to teach you how to make a refreshing Iced Irish Coffee the right way.

The Ingredients:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Maple Syrup
  • Jameson Whiskey
  • Your Favorite Coffee Roast (we used a Chemex)
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Ice

The Tools:

  • Whisk
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Cute Cups/Glasses
  • Spoon
  • Coffee Maker of Choice

The Steps:

  1. Spoon some brown sugar into the glasses you picked out — up the sugar for those with a sweet tooth
  2. Drizzle in some maple syrup (the real kind, sorry Aunt Jemima)
  3. Add one shot of Jameson on top of the sugar and syrup, then stir with spoon. OBVI add more whiskey if you’re hardcore.
  4. Make the coffee as the sugar dissolves in the whiskey, fresh coffee is key — your favorite hot brew will be perfect
  5. As the joe is brewing, pour a generous amount of heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar into the mixing bowl, whisk rapidly until thick and fluffy. Store in refrigerator
  6. When ready, add ice to sugar/whiskey mixture,  pour hot coffee  into the glass. Add more ice if needed.
  7. Top with a huge helping of your freshly-whipped cream
  8. If you’re fancy, drizzle maple syrup and sprinkle sugar on top
  9. Sip. Ahhhhhhhh.
